“It has now been exactly 3 years since Dr. Saidi performed my balloon sinuplasty procedure in March 2014 that, in combination with oral allergy drops, literally – and surprisingly quickly – gave me my life back. After struggling over a year with severe, chronic sinus infections and bizarre new allergies, I was, quite frankly, in a deep pit of despair and barely able to function at work and at home, experiencing absolute misery from my terribly infected sinuses and allergies, as well as significant sleep deprivation, weight gain, and depression.”
“Thankfully, I found Dr. Saidi, the first doctor to take me seriously and truly listen to me, to show me such incredible kindness when I was so fragile and needed it most, to run extensive tests, and to relentlessly pursue the best possible multi-pronged treatment approach. Dr. Saidi pursued all possible less invasive treatments treatments first; when they were unsuccessful, the balloon sinuplasty proved to be the perfect solution for me! I immediately experienced incredible relief the very next day – for the first time in over a year! – and continued to improve drastically every week until I was 100% healed! I began breathing easily, sleeping, exercising, losing weight (40 lbs!), and experiencing tremendous joy for life again! Dr. Saidi and every member of his team exhibit unparalleled excellence, professionalism, expertise, problem-solving, rigor, patience, compassion, and kindness; I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for each of them every single day. Thank you, Dr. Saidi, for restoring me. Thank you for making me whole again. My family and I will forever be indebted to you.”
